Re: Glass's Progress
The consumer applications for Google Glass just aren't available – yet. 

They will be someday, but I think this type of technology is currently more well-suited for an enterprise environment rather than people wearing them walking down the street.

Re: Glass's Progress
Initially, a replacement prescription lens can also cause a headache. It will be interesting to see if consumers are able to identify whether Glass (the technology) or the lens is the cause of discomfort.

A few weeks ago, I came across an AC repair/maintenance business that was utilizing a clamp meter and a Google Glass in their ad campaign. It would be interesting if the business was deriving actual value from the use of Google Glass. For instance, if a famous landmark can be displayed then, historic readings of an AC should also be possible.

Re: Glass's Progress
One thing the FCC does not test for, that Google warns about, is the possibility of headaches from extended use of Glass.

Glass's Progress
It's good to see that a lot of thought is going into radio-frequency exposure; concerns about dangers the dangers therein are important to first quantify and then minimize. I still believe that this product will have its early life as a product for professional users rather than consumers, and will find it's way into more widespread use only as the price comes down.
